SETTING THE STAGE
THE ART OF CONVEYING EMOTIONS, ACTIONS AND FEELINGS WITHOUT SPEECH. NO WORDS, JUST PERFUME
PANTOMIME Parfum was established in 2023 by creative director Jeroen Oude Sogtoen and in-house perfumer Fredrik Dalman. PANTOMIME Parfum searches for opaque clarity through exceptional raw materials and their deconstruction. Pantomime fragrances are created to amplify your memories, stories and emotions.
We provide the stage; you play the role. No words, just perfume.
A MODERN AGE OF OLD-SCHOOL SYNTHETICS
The current fragrance market is full of brands focusing on the beauty of synthetic raw materials. Ingredients like Iso E Super (1973), Ambroxan (1949) and Javanol (1960) are no longer trade secrets but powerful marketing tools. However, the popularity of these synthetics is also their curse – beauty leading to overuse.
A perfumer’s lab is filled with a plethora of fascinating molecules – just waiting for their time to take center stage – And with PANTOMIME Parfum, Ambrettolide HC Supreme (2018), Bisabolene (1960), Methyl Ionone Alpha Extra (1893), Lactone of Cis Jasmone (1973) and Vetiverol (1950) do exactly that.
Synthetic raw materials are as deserving of being center stage as natural ones. They are not a new addition to the perfumer’s palette but very much the foundation of what modern perfumery is today. Synthetic raw materials allow the perfumer to create color and texture while directing light on a specific part of a creation and adding shadows or depth to others. Allowing the perfumer to truly paint their own olfactory space, whatever color, shape or texture they please. PANTOMIME Parfum searches for clarity within depth.
Our approach is for a synthetic raw material to be our lead character – that’s the clarity. By adding in a few well-chosen naturals, we can add the depth. What ties them together is their quality. The highest possible. By playing around with this concept, we can create any stage setting we’d like and then we let you, the consumer, to throw yourself right into this world.
We currently have 5 ACTS. 5 sets of scenery. 5 places for you to discover.
We are taking you to more than a specific location. Each ACT adds an essential dimension with their finely tuned details, moods enhancers and created ambiance.
The aim is to build an atmosphere that expresses these olfactory scenes – this is what PANTOMIME Parfum is all about.
What do you see? What do you hear? What can you touch? Add yourself into the mix, with your memories, emotions, and references. We invite you to step on stage and embody your role. The curtains are ready to be drawn.
